Government improves our daily lives, whether we realize it or not. The teachers in our children's classrooms. The roads and bridges on which we drive. The scientists seeking cures for debilitating disease. The safe medications we take and the safe food we eat. The police who patrol our neighborhoods. The air traffic controllers who ensure we arrive at our destinations, safely. These core government services and more are under attack in the name of deficit reduction. If Congress can't work together to stop deep cuts--aka "sequester" or "sequestration"--millions of jobs will be lost, and core services upon which we all rely will be eliminated.
It's time to hold our lawmakers accountable. We need to let them know that the only way to balance the budget is through a balanced approach--they can't and shouldn't do it by cutting essential jobs and services alone! We've prepared these tools to help you engage in this historic debate and make your voice heard.
